100 Books to Find in or About the Great Rift: Afawahisa, Riftspan Reaches and Touchstone


Books can be a source of useful and important knowledge, but libraries are not filled with books that can be described as such. Shelves and databases will also hold books that are less useful; religious tracts, legends, histories, biographies, memoirs, scientific works and fiction. This supplement adds 100 different books that a Referee can use to flesh out a bookshelf. The books in this supplement cover the Great Rift, in particular the sectors of Afawahisa, Riftspan Reaches and Touchstone. These sectors are predominately Aslan; the authors given are Imperial and, where an Imperial author is unlikely, these are the translators. Whether or not an individual book has anything useful in-game is up to the Referee; books can be founts of misinformation as well as knowledge.

Here are some sample results:

  • Space Submarines: The Curious Craft of Yolrilao by Dhareef Tongap (How Yolrilao in the Aulryakh subsector of Riftspan Reaches is adapting submarine designs into spacegoing vessels)
  • Superior Ships (A promotional book on the ships produced by Hasawe'i in the Wahtoikoeakh subsector of Riftspan Reaches, stating all the ways in which they are, supposedly, better than those produced by Hluarelai)
  • T-O-1's Original Civilisation by Natalie Mambila (Details of the ancient, destroyed civilisation on T-O-1 in the Just One subsector of Touchstone)
  • Tales of Yuhiyah by Endel Baldoni (A collection of children's stories and far-fetched tales about what the Aslan encountered in the Yuhiyah subsector of Riftspan Reaches)
  • Tenets of Rraerrgdzakaek by Délina Abdulghafurov (Pure guesswork and speculation as to what the tenets of the Vargr cult found on Rraerrgdzakaek in the Aosola subsector of Touchstone are)

One page is the front cover, one page the front matter and most of one page is ads.

I'm interested in some of the concepts mentioned, but I don't understand how 9 pages will give me 100 books.

Each book is briefly described with name, author (if there is one) and a description of its contents. Here is one of the examples:

Tenets of Rraerrgdzakaek by Délina Abdulghafurov (Pure guesswork and speculation as to what the tenets of the Vargr cult found on Rraerrgdzakaek in the Aosola subsector of Touchstone are)

Ah! Okay. So this is like a d100 roll table for fictional books which players could find, in-game. Thanks for the quick response.

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
